Title: National or Waldon's Scouts

"The CSO, Cape Colony in his CRA 2/1528/1 dated 23/7/03 ruled that services of officers only in the National Scouts should be counted towards the grant of the King's Medal".

Letter 5/4/05 O/C BD Cape Town AG2/14552 'Officers' means Regular irregular forces (idem).

Sorry, I must have missed this one before. There is an unnamed QSA with 24 bars which is currently in the Sydney "Powerhouse" Museum. It used to be on display in the old Sydney Mint building and I lusted over it several times!!!!! Eventually, I did run into one with the full 26 bars, however. I note that your "page 51" note says "two medals" and I think that it may refer to sample QSA and KSA.
